In the title compound, [Sn(C6H11)3(C6H10NS2)], the SnIV atom is tetracoordinated by three C atoms from cyclohexyl groups and one S atom from a piperidinedithiocarboxylate anion. The coordination geometry is distorted tetrahedral, with Sn-C bond lengths in the range 2.133 (6)-2.188 (6) Å and with an Sn-S bond length of 2.4516 (19) Å. The nonbonded S atom of the piperidinedithiocarboxylate anion makes an SnS contact of 3.174 (3) Å.
